March 14 Meeting

Join the Wake County Beekeepers Association on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 for our monthly meeting at the Wake County Commons Building, 4011 Carya Drive, Raleigh.  Ben Crawley and a special guest will discuss how to “shake a package” (install it) and what to do with a swarm.  There will be a hands-on portion at this meeting.  Ben will bring a bee vacuum and show everyone how to make a bucket on a pole, along with a parts list so you can make your own. (Find out why you need a bucket on a pole!) The gathering begins at 7 pm and the meeting starts at 7:30.  Come and bring a friend.

The first hands-on in the bee yard, scheduled for March 19, has been postponed to March 26, due to the cold weather.

The 2017 “Swarm Zone Map” has been updated.  2017 swarm zone map
